Clinical practice informs basic science research, and that research in turn informs clinical practice. That is the key to advancing medical treatment. The field of oncology is an excellent example of this – discoveries in molecular biology and genetics have revolutionized clinical care for patients with cancer. New genomic technologies are allowing us to understand molecular changes that underlie cancer development, with the promise of more specific diagnoses and individualized treatment options.
In this new series from UC San Francisco, genitourinary cancers are discussed with an emphasis on how research and advances in technologies are impacting clinical care of cancer in the urinary tract and male genital tract – cancer of the prostate, bladder, kidney, testis, and related organs.
